Mohita Patel, RN

Forum Mentor Leader, Student Experience Coach

I am truly passionate about helping people be empowered to take their health into their own hands! Having personally navigated my own chronic illness, I’m thankful for the opportunity to now guide others in their own path to better health. Likewise, I’m immensely grateful for the opportunity to be part of the SAFM team and to see people become empowered by their knowledge and learning experience here. Functional Medicine changed my life and I can only hope that I am able to share the wonders of what I was gifted with, an incredible tribe of like-minded practitioners!

 

Rachael Pomato, MS, CNS, LDN

Huddle Facilitator Leader

Rachael loves sharing functional medicine with others and is particularly fascinated by the role of the GI tract in downstream dysfunction and imbalance. Rachael is also very passionate about empowering clients and coaches to prioritize self-care and the mind-body connection. Rachael found SAFM after searching for more education and tools to incorporate FM into her practice. She loves facilitating huddles, educating, listening, learning, sharing her experiences, and coaching other coaches.

Dainna Pearlman, CHC, AFMC Certified

Director of Student Services

Starting out as an SAFM student myself, I’ve gained a unique perspective on what it’s like to be an adult learner returning to a rigorous, comprehensive, professional training organization while building a thriving practice at the same time. Initially, I thought I’d learn what I needed from the school then move on, but I’ve truly come to love our community and the support we provide to our students far too much to stop now! I relish the global impact we’re having in transforming healthcare.

Eddie Carter

Integrator & Business Operations Manager

Joining SAFM and meeting Tracy in 2017 was literally a dream come true for me, as it allows me to be part of such a great movement and amazing team. As a husband and father of two, true health and enhancing the way we approach it – is a passion for me and my family. My goal is to help SAFM educate more health practitioners and change as many lives as possible. To help accomplish this, I bring my passions and expertise of building scalable, profitable and effective businesses that support a great work environment and don’t lose track of their purpose.
